AC DC Electricity

Converter & Inverter

Q: What is the difference between a converter and an inverter?

A: A converter takes 120Volts Alternating Current (120VAC)(like in your house or shore power) and makes it 12 Volts Direct Current(12vdc) (like the batteries in your RV). An inverter takes 12VDC and makes it 120VAC. Now the catch here is there are two types of inverters. Want to learn more, check out this:
